Strong E9 Climber Emma Twyford Attempts Big Chamonix Free Ascent

In April 2015, Emma Twyford travelled to Chamonix with Calum Muskett to attempt what would have been the first female ascent of the Voie Petite, a 14-pitch route on the Grand Capucin with difficulties up to 5.13+. While Emma is perhaps best known as one of the U.K.’s leading trad and sport climbers, with numerous hard sends under her belt as well as trad ascents up to E9, the potential of climbing in the wild surroundings of the Alps still held a special draw for her.
